This week, I am featuring:
The Road to Paradise
by Karen Barnett
I love Karen’s novels. They are SO good. And this series is outstanding. It’s so much fun, and I’ve been learning so much about our historic national parks. If you are in the mood for a well-researched, beautifully written historical romance with endearing characters, then I highly recommend this series. Definitely begin with book 1, The Road to Paradise.

About the Book
In 1927, Margie Lane, an avid naturalist, convinces her Senator father to procure her a position at the fledgling Mount Rainier National Park. Since Ranger Ford Brannon lost his father in a climbing accident, he doubts his ability to protect the park and its many visitors. He certainly doesn’t relish the job of watching over an idealistic and privileged young woman with no practical survival skills.
When Margie’s former fiance sets his mind on developing the Paradise Inn and its surroundings into a tourist playground, Margie and Ford will have to work together to preserve the beauty and simplicity of this mountain hideaway, but the developer’s plans might put more than just the park in danger.
